RIR Salutes Hamlin
Local Driver Seeks First Sprint Cup Title Sunday
Henrico Citizen Staff Reports 11/19/10
Richmond International Raceway isn't hiding its rooting interest in Sunday's final NASCAR race of the year: the track is displaying graphics encouraging Chesterfield native Denny Hamlin, as he tries to lock up his first Sprint Cup championship Sunday at the Ford 400 in Homestead, Fla.
RIR’s 153-foot video scoring tower reads “Go Denny!” on its massive video boards and “Good Luck Denny!” on the leader board.
Hamlin has a 15-point lead over four-time defending champion Jimmie Johnson and is 46 points ahead of Kevin Harvick.
The Ford 400 NASCAR airs on ESPN at 1 p.m. Sunday.
Reynolds Community College will host Richmond sculptor Paul DiPasquale Sept. 28 as he shares his presentation “Art Talk, Why Art Matters” from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Conference Center Gallery of the Workforce Development and Conference Center on the Parham Road Campus, located at 1651 E. Parham Road in Richmond. This event is free and open to the public. > Read more.
